25 months old

He is very attached to me lately, want me to hug or follow me around. He also love to play with gadgets like Blackberry and iPad; and less fancy toys and magnetic blocks.

At 25 months old, he is very babbling. He is very protective of his stuff and toys and does not like to share with other kids including his sister sometimes. If he does not get his way, he will scratch or pinch people and if he loses, he will pretend to cry and seek our attention. Lol!

Now I am trying to spend some time at night to read and teach him to love books. Hopefully like his sister, he will learn to love to read.

Me and her time

It is Saturday again. Busy at the shop and Princess has finished her music class more than an hour ago.

Big J was sleeping when we went out around 8.30am this morning. He was not feeling well. Must be overworked and lack of sleep for the past days this week due to his meeting. Later he needed to sit for his insurance exam, I wonder whether he is fit for it or not. Hope this time he will not flunk again.

It has been a while since I brought Princess Jan to shopping so I guess it is about time to shop for her shoes or sandals. Since we are going to attend a cousin's wedding next month, I think it is a good excuse to get both of us new sandals. I looked through my shoes rack and noticed that I do not have many high heels to wear. Mostly court shoes that I wore for my previous employment. I never like court shoes, so not often I wear them.

We will go to Tabuan Jaya area to shop for footwear after our lunch. It has been long since I visit that area. Wish us luck in finding suitable sandals! *wink*

Night-time bath

Both kids especially my boy must take bath every night. When ever possible I try to avoid bathing him at night as I worry he will catch a cold. However he will cry if I do not give in to his request. Sigh!

So if the kids are with me in the shop I will bathe them before putting them to sleep. When the kids are at shop they will play and sometimes you never know what they get in crowded areas like shopping malls. So I like it or not, I will bathe them but it would not be a long affair. It is hard to bathe both kids together as they tend to be mischievious. When one gets naughty, the other will follow.

A hot Saturday evening, so we decided to bring both kids to the swimming pool. Baby Jay tried his first swimming suit. Fit him nicely.

The kids posed for photo before jump into the pool.

Music is in the air

My house has never has a quiet moment once the kids are at home. Since my SIL bought Princess a toy keyboard and Baby Jay a toy guitar, both have been jamming with their respective instruments almost every evening. They still play even after 10pm and sometimes lasts till 12midnight. I am more worry about the noise pollution and what the neighbours would think with my kids playing and shouting at such hours.

But with 2 active kids around, it is pretty hard to make them quiet. Since my Princess Jan goes to music school, she has shown more interests in music. She loves singing and dancing, so I guess music class suits her. And Baby Jay also started to sing to us, although we do not understand a single words out of him. The baby sitter loves to play Chinese New Year songs for them, so my Baby Jay will always clasp his hands and sing around the room, like those singers in the music videos.

Learning with iPad

I save a lot of money on books since we have the iPad2. My Princess is very besotted with it, especially its games. Trying as hard as we could, we are limiting her time with the games. We starting to introduce more ebooks to her and since then, she read her ebooks from iPad before going to bed almost every evening. And it is good thing to have the Chinese word flash cards as she can brush her Chinese skill with them too.

Got Princess' report book today and teacher is commenting that Princess is intelligent and her social skill is also improving, but lack of confidence to go up the stage. Sigh! I know about the lack of confidence part and I am still thinking of way to encourage her to improve her skill. Headache.

First day in Music Class

Princess gone to her first music class today!!! Actually she is now in the music class, which is just a block away from my shop. I was a bit worried at first whether she would want to stay on or not, but after a stroll around the classes, she settled down for her first lesson. I have been telling her about music class for few days and she was happy that she kept nagging me the whole day to go to the class. Managed to squeeze out from the shop around 11.00am to bring her over.

RM60.00 per month, and since she is new, she will learn music notes for the first month, slowly teacher will introduce piano lesson to her. I can see that she was excited while we were in the registration lobby, as she was walking and studying the classes and music instruments. And to my surprise, she just gave me a kiss on the cheek and waved me good bye. It just reminded me of my first day in music class, but I was older when I went to my first class. I remember I was around 12 years old when my dad placed me in organ class. My music skill has diminished with time since I stopped classes to continue my degree at age of 20. Lol!

I could not wait to listen to my Princess' babbling about her first day when I picked her up later.
